New York City attractions to experience

As a first-time visitor, selecting the top attractions in New York can be nearly impossible – they can’t all be reached in one go, so you have to prioritize.

We went to the city and here you can read about the attractions we found most interesting and which are among the best known.

If you buy a hop on / hop off bus ticket or sightseeing pass (affiliate links) then all these attractions are on the Downtown route.

Brooklyn Bridge

Boat trip on Hudson

9/11 Memorial

Central Park

Top of the Rock

Woodbury Outlet

Grand Central Terminal

Best Sightseeing Pass

There are lots of attractions to see in NYC, but the above are some of the places that I was really happy to experience the first time.

Bring the right shoes and walk around the city – there is a lot to experience by just walking around – and it costs nothing to walk (and there certainly isn’t much in NYC which is free).

When you see (affiliate links) in our articles, it means that if you book tours, hotels etc. via our recommended links, we earn a small bit in commission – thank you for your support.
